AZELA Signs Letter Opposing the Confirmation of Eric Dreiband to Be the Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice

Dear Senator,

On behalf of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition charged by
its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the
civil and human rights of all persons in the United States, and the undersigned national, state,
and local organizations, we write to express our opposition to the confirmation of Eric
Dreiband to be the Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S.
Department of Justice. Mr. Dreiband – like many other individuals who have been
nominated by President Trump to lead federal offices whose missions they have challenged
and opposed during their careers – is the wrong choice for this position, and we urge you to
vote against him.
